new tumblr blog thingy

A few days ago I made a new blog thingy on tumblr. It's basically just a bunch of doodles and sometimes comic things. It's orange doodle place!! I took a bit of inspiration from this one: lemons and saeizures drawn by Nik of gamejolt. If you can please follow both of them!

In other news, the Rocket Leaper update went okay. Not a whole lot of new players, but that could change in the future. Most players find the game rather difficult. Here are some stats the game has been recording through GJ API!

Deaths: 764
Hours Played:  4.03 (kindof pitiful, I know)
Rockets Frozen: 5841
Shots Missed: 786
GrapZaps: 1250
Powerups Acquired: 92
Showers Seen: 341
Showers Survived: 241

So on the bright side, everything seems to be working well and there aren't any glitches or bugs.

They also gave me a moderator badge on GameJolt, so that is something, too.

Will talk later.

Lasor Dot Man HTML5 released!

A few of you may recall one of my older games, Lasor Dot Man. It was a game I created in 4 hours for the RDC. That's always fun. Anyway, I decided I'd like to port the game to HTML5. I took the game as an opportunity to mess around with the GameJolt API in GMStudio(Creds to Florian Van Strein for his great example).
The game is now available on GameJolt, there are 2 trophies you can get from it as well!

Sleepshooter featured on YYG

Sleepshooter has, indeed, been featured on the Yoyogames Sandbox! I've always dreamed of getting one of my games featured there, but somehow it doesn't seem as glamorous now as it would have been a few years ago. It just seems really dead there.

There are a few other tasty things you'll be glad to hear... I've been working on switching the online highscore system for Rocket Leaper over to GameJolt. I had previously been using Clockwork, but unfortunately the guy who was running that is taking it down or something. I'm also implementing some delicious trophies for the game as well, so you'll be able to get some yummy GameJolt EXP points!

A couple of my games have been getting bits of publicity as well, so that's always good.
Vision Pill was featured on Indie Impressions and!
Jerry Clouds was featured on Indie Statik and!

I also have access to some dainty informations on a few of the games uploaded to GameJolt. Ice Cream Dodger, for instance, after being downloaded nearly 700 times, has only been beaten 14 times(with well over 7000 deaths). Shevrolet Shotgun, on the other hand, with a bit over 700 downloads, has been beaten 112 times(with just a bit over 2000 deaths).
Yeah, I really like this handy lil GameJolt API thing :3

Until next time~
